Anti Turnover Push-Ups

Anti Turnover Push-Ups

At Nevada, we take great pride in taking care of the basketball. When Nevada made it to the Sweet 16 and completed a historic 22-point comeback against Cincinnati (the 2nd best defensive team in the country), our Pack players only committed 2 turnovers throughout the entire game.

To put a major emphasis on not turning the ball over in practice, we do pushups. For each turnover that happens during practice, our coaching staff stops play and everyone must do 10 pushups. Each turnover = 10 pushups.

This means everyone, the entire gym will drop down and do 10 push-ups. Coaches, players, managers, and trainers all are held accountable for these turnovers. We want Pack players to take pride in taking care of the ball and limit the amount of push-ups we do during practice.
